Abstract

Background: Cutaneous angiosarcoma is a rare, life-threatening tumor that is often initially misdiagnosed. This delay in diagnosis can affect tumor growth, metastatic potential, and prognosis. Observations: We describe the "head-tilt maneuver," which highlights the vascular nature of these lesions and can be of potential benefit in early recognition and better appreciation of the clinical extent of this tumor. Conclusion: Early recognition and aggressive management of these tumors can afford the best opportunity for cure.
